will be hostile senators who have questions about benghazi? >> i think if he chooses to go that direction, it's -- he has that right. now look, susan rice went through the talks last week. some went well, some didn't go that well. but i think that overall, if it's the president's -- it is his option to do it. i think right now, you know, it looks like he probably will. but i don't think he, my sense is that -- she hasn't done anything yet that is going to disqualify her. senator lieberman said that. you have most of the senate democrats who are rallying behind her. i think if she was put up, i think she would be confirmed. >> shannon: matt, doug mentioned the meetings with the senators this week. some say it's the early making the rounds and trying to make nice as if she is going to be the nominee for secretary of state. some of those meetings that doug mentioned did not go well. there were those that came out and said they were more concerned than they were before the meeting with her. what uphill battle do you think she would face? >> large one. there is a happy senior senator from massachu

able and has done the best job. obviously she has questions to answer in benghazi. the report was accurate. i don't believe it did reach her. she has an obligation to testify to show what her role was. how those decisions are made. apparently it didn't go to her, but why doesn't it go that high. if she runs in 2016 she will be judged on her record. so long as she comes in i think that will immunize her as far as running for president. but it is essential she do testify. >> on 48 hours notice she will be back to work. we appreciate that. thanks for coming in. >> thank you, congressman. >> congressman king just gave us the big fallout and questioning why some of the information may not have gotten to secretary of state hillary clinton. the scathing report blames the state department for failing to protect the u.s. consulate, and it raises questions about mrs. mrs. clinton's role. she does take she stakes responsibility, and she promises to testify about what happened at the house foreign affairs committee hearings held next month. for more on this let's go to the former spokespe
on the benghazi terror attack on our u.s. consulate there. joining me now, former u.n. ambassador to the united nations, john bolton and a fox news contributor. good to have you with us this afternoon. secretary clinton is still recovering from her illness and of course will prevent her from travelling abroad, but it will allow her to testify next month in an open congressional hearing on the september 11th attack on benghazi. what do you think her testimony will reveal about the events leading up to the attack, during and afterwards? >> of course, it depends on how well the hearings are prepared by members of congress, they need to give up their opening statements, they need to ask questions, not make their own statements. they need to coordinate to divide up responsibility because this is, this is an opportunity that's only going to come once and if they're making their own statements or duplicating their questions we're going to find out a lot less. i think the areas of inquiry fall into three categories, number one, what did the secretary know before the september 11th attacks about request
the benghazi attack that left four americans dead. in the meantime, clare mccaskill came to the ambassador's defense. >> she had reviewed the dpeor foer going. >> on sunday shows and went well beyond the talking points, we have decimated al-qaeda, that was nowhere on the talking points, said things the attack was a result of a heinous and offensive video. said the security at our consulate and strong and significant. that is not in the talking points and frankly not supported by the record of what happened. >> the talking points came from the intelligence community. you don't hear one criticism of david petraeus. it was his shop that produced the talking points that susan rice talked about. is there a double standard here? it appears there is, very unfair one. >> gregg: last week rice met with members of the senate armed services committee to try to explain the situation. lindsay graham saying that ambassador rice did not help herself very much. >> heather: supporters of mohammed morsi staging a demonstration in washington, d.c. standing in front of the egyptian embassy armed with signs. o
in benghazi that killed four americans. senator lindsey graham demanding had he appear before congress ahead of john kerry confirmation. take a listen to the interviews on fox "fox news sunday." >> senator graham, how important is it for secretary of state hillary clinton to testify under oath before she leaves office about the benghazi terror attack? and what do you think we still need to know? >> absolutely essential that she testify. i want to know from the secretary of state's point of view, were you informed of the security situation, were all these cables coming out of benghazi, ever get to your level. if they didn't, that's a problem. if they did, why didn't you act differently. >> some republican colleagues are prepared to hold off confirm nation of john kerry as secretary of state until secretary of state clinton testifies as secretary. >> that's going to happen i've been told by senator kerry, he wants that approach. he needs to hear what she says so we can comment. it makes sense to have her go first. >> senator feinstein, do we hear she needs to testify first and have you heard -
issues from the fallout over the september 11th terror attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, to growing unrest in the middle east, as well as asia. our peter doocy has been following the story and live from washington. what are the details of the nominee? >> kelly, back in 2004, senator kerry let then state senator barack obama speak at his nomination, and it was a road to the white house. and yesterday at the white house president obama nominated kerry to be secretary of state in his second term. >> in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for this role. as a son of a foreign service officer, he has a deep respect for the men and women of the the state department, the role they play in advancing our interests and values, the risks that they undertake and the sacrifice that is they make along with their families. >> issues with iran, syria and north korea are the most pressing senator kerry will face if he's confirmed. yesterday, a long time colleague of his, senator john mccain congratulated him on his nomination and will consider that nomination, but he did not prom
and work continues for many people this week your work on the hill with the two benghazi hearings, one in the house and one in the senate this week. but news that secretary clinton is ill and has been injured with a concussion and will not testify. are you confident that others who will show up in her place will provide much-needed answers. >> i am sure they can provide answers, but ultimately, i believe that secretary clintonville to testify. i have a great respect for secretary clinton. no one would know more about this than she would. no one would be in a position, really to answer the tough questions of secretary clinton. once she has recovered, i believe it is important that she testify. i know that the chairwoman of the international affairs committee believes that secretary clinton is an indozensible witness. what happened in benghazi, there are so many unanswered questions, it appears so many things went wrong and too many people in the administration were trying to put out a false story, which accounts, i believe, for the constant changing of the story, as we have gone on and
into the terror attack in benghazi, libya. authorities in egypt arresting this man in cairo, mohammed ahmad. he's identified as the alleged ring leader of an al-qaeda-linked group that is suspected of taking part in the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate where ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed. u.s. intelligence reportedly take part in the capture. molly henneberg has more for us from washington. >> hi, jamie, a leader in the terror world, ambitious and very dangerous and now, egyptian authorities aided have him. and the u.s. officials have been tracking him for months according to the wall street journal and interest in him intensified after some of his follow,participated in the attack on the consulate in libya. we don't have details how or when-- how or where he was detained. u.s. officials have not been able to interrogate him yet. here is what we do know: he's a former egyptian jihad member, released from prison in march -- he was in prison in egypt, he was released in march, 2011 during the arab spring. he's now the leader of the jamal network and bee
, as expected, be testifying on capitol hill about the events in benghazi. so for secretary clinton's account of the events ab as she perceived them in washington. we will have to wait longer. >> i think members can wait considering her illness and hope back to tip top shape soon. >> we hope so. >> of the nation grieves including a visibly upset president obama. what is the president calling for in the wake of the shooting? >> they had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids are gone. >> and an incident like this could test one's faith. we'll hear from the monsignor providing support and comfort to the residents of newtown. energy is being produced to power our lives. while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providing generations of cleaner-burning energy for our country, drilling thousands of feet below fresh water sources within self-contained well systems. and, using state-of-the-art monitoring technologies, rigorous practices help ensure our operations are safe and clean fo
the benghazi controversy. what can we expect? susan estrich, a professor of political signs at usc, does it matter that john kerry was not the president's first choice? >> it doesn't matter at all. the issue with kerry from the get-go was not confidential or qualifications, not loyalty to president obama after all. he endorsed him in the primaries, the issue was a guy named scott brown, who is a former republican senators from massachusetts, narrowly lost his race to elizabeth warren and now what we'll have, there will be a temporary appointment and a special election in massachusetts. and, scott brown, notwithstanding my home state is democrat, is leading all the democrats, and the issue with kerry, it would cost a democratic seat, likely in the senate. >> rick: i want to go back to the idea the president badly wanted sutures rice to be the next secretary of state and made no secret about it and she had to go and withdraw her name from consideration. now, assuming john kerry wins confirmation, we'll talk about the process in a minute, does it matter if a secretary kerry is sitting down

are the things that came out of the benghazi issue. that and a whole lot of blame for everybody. we have to put the blame game aside and they are figuring out what it is and get the resources. they were there. we have to make it available. >> many blamed lack of funding to the state department and specifically republican cuts to funding on the state department. in part for the benghazi department. they said this about that quote. if the state department intends to blame the long list of failures on inadequate funding perhaps they should take a closer look at the money on the climate change. culinary diplomacy programs and other projects what do you say to that? >> there are plenty of places we could make cuts. one of those areas is not in the security for the various consulates and embassies. we need to make sure the money is there. we have to get away from the blame game. there is very important information that came out of the study by the select committee that took a look at that. we need to pay attention to that. but those elements are there. adequate money for the security. make sure the m
the september 11 killings in benghazi but we still don't have answers as to why enhanced security wasn't provided before the attack and how to explain this story of the movie about the prophet muhammad as the cause of the attack. i think in egypt specifically we need to try and use our influence on the egyptian military to stabilize the situation. and to use all those billions of dollars of aide we've given over the years to try to prevent the international situation from deteriorating further. >> there's little or no evidence the president's paying attention. >> do you think it's fair to say he doesn't care about national security? he's the president. >> his record over the past four years, as he said during the 2008 campaign, he wanted to fundamentally transform america and that's what he set about doing. i don't think he's uncomfortable with decline in american influence internationally. that's what is playing out in the middle east right now. >> the vote continues next saturday likely to go even more conservative. embassador bolton, always good to see you. >> thank you. >>> for the
got a bunch of questions over the benghazi terror attacks. what do we expect to hear from secretary clinton. joining us is k.t. mcfarland, one takes her at her word when she and spokesperson says she is ill. she has certainly managed to dodge a lot of this event since september 11th. >> yeah, she said she would take full responsibility but she has avoided taking any blame. one thing i think with the hearings, this will probably be the last opportunity as they lawmakers will have to question her as secretary of state. i hope instead of looking back and saying, what did you know, why didn't you talk about the video, i hope instead they focus forward which is why have you not responded. why haven't the responded after these attacks. we know that ten years ago, in the late 1989 and embassies were bombed, 2000, u.s.s. cole was bombed, we beefed up security and changed the rules of engagement but we never went after al-qaeda. what happened as a result, bin laden said, let's go get them again. my concern and i hope these lawmakers and secretary clinton, why has the united states not gotten
